Neal Slavin interview on Tony Ward’s blog!

On what turned out to be a beautiful morning in New York, I was walking along Greene Street in SoHo to meet with Neal Slavin in his studio. Tony Ward publishes a monthly blog and he asked me to make a portrait of Neal for an upcoming issue. I had no idea of how I was going to make this happen. I act...

Register now for NEAL SLAVIN'S POCKET WORKSHOP!

Workshop: Saturday, July 29 / Sunday, July 30, 2023
Requirements: camera & gear, a statement telling us something about yourself and your photography (may include a small sampling of your work) which should be sent to [email protected] before the workshop begins.
Location: Neal Slavin Studio in NYC/ Workshop limited to 8 students
10 AM - 5 PM / Morning coffee at 9:30 am / lunch included
$595.
To register please pay full amount via check or Pay Pal before start of workshop.

Neal Slavin is a world - respected photographer and film director. His work includes a professional career of over 40 years, during which he has photographed a myriad of
subjects including celebrities, notable dignitaries and is best known for his group portraits.
His teaching credits include classes and workshops at Les Recontres d'Arles in Provence, The Cooper Union, CUNY, SVA, the Ansel Adams Workshop in Yosemite, visiting artist at the Art Institute of Chicago and the International Center of Photography (ICP). His work is collected in both public and private institutions.

All artistic endeavors including photography come from the same place in the belly! Which one the artist uses to express him/herself is entirely the artist's choice. What isn't by choice is the influence the other arts contribute to the success
of the artist's chosen field, in our case photography. Through listening to music, drawing from the figure and listening to oral poetry we are able to create photographs that are honest and expressive. We will learn how to let those other disciplines help us in our creations. We come to understand that the rhythm we hear in a piece of music is the same rhythm made visible in a photograph. The lines in a drawing can be found in the shapes in a photograph. Sound crazy? Come aboard for a sensorial 2 days of experiencing the relationship between your photographs and the world of the arts!

Larry Fink: Many Shades of Concern, Washington, August 28, 1963
“My thoughts and heart are with the protesters. There was a time when I wouldn’t miss a dem- onstration for anything. I’m in the studio going through vintage negatives and wishing that the change that was needed then would not be needed now. Persist.” — Larry Fink, July 2020
On August 28, 1963, more than 2,000 buses, 21 chartered trains, 10 chartered airliners, plus a huge number of cars, all converged on Washington D.C. All regularly scheduled planes, trains, and buses were also filled to capacity.
The March on Washington — or March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, to give it it’s full title — attracted a quarter of a million people. It was the first time in the history of the United States that a political event of such size had been initiated and mobilized by African Americans.
David Hill Gallery and Carrie Scott are working with Larry Fink to release prints of Many Shades of Concern, Washington, August 28, 1963. In the composition, a southern sharecropper takes center stage. His stature and stance, flanked on either side by billowing American flags, is totemic. He is powerful in his determination, his back turned against the accepted symbol of the so-called “American Dream” just as society has turned its back to him. Fifty-seven years later, Americans like him are still waiting for the change to come.
100% of net income will go to The Until Freedom organization, as per the wishes of the artist, Carrie Scott and David Hill. Neither the art- ist nor the dealers will profit from print sales.
Many Shades of Concern, Washington, August 28, 1963 is available in two sizes:
• 9 x 12 in. (23 x 30.5 cm) Baryta print, stamped with the artist’s signature, in open, unlimited, edition at GBP £100, including VAT, unframed
• 16 x 20 in. (40 x 50 cm) silver gelatin ex- hibition print, signed by the artist and numbered, in an edition of eight. These prints are priced at £5,000, including VAT, unframed.

07/08/2020

The below message from the Editor of The Photo Review about the Black Lives Matter movement was sent out to subscribers in the most recent issue of our quarterly publication. We wanted to share it publicly in hopes that it can spark discussion and change beyond our journal and its subscriber base alone.


BLACK LIVES MATTER. This is an indisputable statement. Around the world, murders of Black people by police and vigilantes have inspired uprisings, rage, despair, and demands for systemic change. While these demands often focus on the injustices of the government, non-Black people should all be asking ourselves what systems we are a part of and how we might influence these systems to be part of necessary change.

As you well know, I am the editor of The Photo Review. As you might know, I am a white, cisgender, straight man, old enough to be in the at-risk group during this pandemic. Inhabiting these places of privilege, I consider it particularly important for me to ask myself what my place is in this struggle. My family is Jewish — my father and his family were immigrants escaping pogroms in Russia, and the reality of the Holocaust was ever present in my childhood. I do not compare these experiences with those of Black Americans — rather, I want to express that I see my fight against various forms of white supremacy on a very personal level. I know I must use what privilege I have to work toward the implementation of the values of the Black Lives Matter movement.

My work is situated at the intersection of fine art photography, journalism, and the art market. So that is where I’ll start. The Photo Review is in discussion with several Black photographers and writers to increase our coverage of images and issues of importance to Black communities and other communities of color and their relationship to the medium of photography.

But this is only one approach. I want to ask my peers and others: How does racial injustice come into play in our field? There are many questions we can ask ourselves.

In many areas, why do works by Black artists sell for less than those of their white counterparts? On the flip side, it happens that the value of art that used to be the pride of Black communities has now ballooned to the point of making that work completely inaccessible to these communities. What socioeconomic classes does Black art inhabit?

Sometimes it happens that white artists’ work about Black lives gets more attention than Black artists’ work about their own lives. We should be aware of the white gaze — the ways Black art and artists are seen by white people through a lens of ethnocentrism and spectacle. Are we (white art professionals) basing our judgment and analysis of Black art on our own art-values systems? Are we making space for Black artists to contextualize their own work, their own lives?

At a time of riots and looting over racial injustice, some are saying that many museums have themselves looted — frequently in the form of white archaeologists taking valuable artifacts from nonwhite countries. Where does Black art come from? Have Black artists, communities, and histories been respected and duly compensated for work an arts institution benefits from?

For centuries, museums have acquired less Black art and shown fewer exhibits with Black artists than their non-Black contemporaries. African American history and art museums were the principal places to view Black artists’ work. Much progress has been made on this front but there is so much left to do. In which institutions does Black art live? Where is it visible?

And I would like to bring up the issue of staffing in institutions. Who is on the board? In the leadership positions? Are they mostly or all white? In contrast, who mops their floors?

Some of these questions will be very uncomfortable and difficult to confront, answer, or disrupt. But it is the job of non-Black people to ask ourselves these questions and work on their answers as best we can.

In the meantime, I encourage you to support Black-owned galleries. Artsy recently compiled a list; there’s one on Shoppe Black and another on Blavity — those could be a great place to start — as well as See in Black (see page 14). Attend African American history museums. Attend exhibits of Black artists. Support Black artists. Take time to educate yourself on Black art history as well as contemporary Black artists.

In solidarity,
Stephen Perloff

Thank you to Cressa Perloff for her help drafting this letter and contributing her insights and research to its development.

See In Black: Vol. 001 Black In America.

With the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, David McAtee, Tony McDade, and other Black people at the hands of law enforcement, See In Black formed as a collective of Black photographers to dismantle white supremacy and systematic oppression. Through the sale of highly-curated original images from Black photographers, we raise funds to support causes that align with our vision of Black prosperity. We stand in solidarity with our greater Black family to take immediate action for the improvement of Black lives. Our intention is to replenish those we've been nourished by.

100% of profits support our Partners. Sale open through Fri 7/3. All prints $100.

A sneak peek inside my studio as I hope to wrap up printing the last 40 images for my solo show at CEPA Gallery.Hopefully, I will have all 65 prints to Park Ave. Picture Framing on Tuesday.

I still have many more elements to dedicate my time to before the opening on April 10th.

Be sure to watch for more announcements during April. There is a participatory community event that will allow individuals to win one of three FUJIFILM North America Corporation cameras, my printing services, and exhibition prints.

It’s a Funday Monday and a perfect day to scan. The three-ring binder of negatives for my project “Felicific Calculus: Technology as a Social Marker of Race, Class, & Economics in Rochester, NY,” is now taller than my largest loupe.

Luckily, I can focus today on my body of work to prepare for my exhibition at CEPA Gallery. It opens in April, but I still need to photograph, record more audio stories, and create better maps.

Park Ave. Picture Framing will be aiding in the production of the window matted and framed pieces.

All photographs will be available in three sizes and will be produced in a limited edition. These will be the perfect holiday gift for those that live in Bethlehem, PA, or grew up there.
